Clink Street tunnel in London
The Clink Street tunnel project is part of the Light at the End of the Tunnel (LET) program. The program was launched to transform the 10 km stretch of disused Victorian viaducts south of the Thames River in Central London. This stretch consists of 97 roads and pedestrian tunnels, many of them dark and unwelcoming to pedestrians. The hope is that invigorating and unifying these areas with light will encourage investment, leading to jobs and other economic growth for the riverside communities.
Created by the London-based lighting design firm Halo Lighting, the display incorporates Philips Color Kinetics iColor Flex MX, flexible strands of full-color LED nodes capable of producing two- and three-dimensional patterns and video onto the archway of the tunnels. The lights are additionally programmed to correspond with the highs and lows of the pedestrian flow in the tunnel.
